Working with SAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shipping giant Safmarine, Tsai used recycled shipping containers to develop architectural solutions for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;instant deployable relief housingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for crisis situations and other purposes.

Tsaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s multiple award winning Nested Bunk Beds is a set of stacked beds on pine frames, that retract into the space of a single bed. Sections can be pulled out to service a number of purposes, including a sofa and grand stand-type seating. When fully extended, it sleeps five.

Tsaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal for the Museum of Contemporary Art and Planning Exhibitions (MOCAPE) is a competition entry for the city of Shenzen, China. Inspired by the beautiful mountain range that surrounds the city, the exterior of the building resembles rolling mountains and the interior space is a cavelike space with stalagmite columns.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This dress was inspired by Zimbabwean women who crochet endless table cloths and bed covers. We transformed and recycled these into extremely sexy dresses interwoven with brightly coloured gauze strips. The dress was also over-dyed with natural indigo from North Africa.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used seseshwe (there are many variations of spelling for this fabric) throughout my career and since my work with this fabric is widely copied by other designers, I constantly re-invent the product. Scarification patterns used by tribes in northern Zimbabwe was the inspiration for this â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;rib cageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; effect.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over-dyed and beaded seseshwe with strips of gold fabric creating a slashed effect between panels.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Similar inspiration as the previous image with the mini version made from off-cuts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ultimate recycling! The neckpiece is layered leather made by Chloe Townsend specifically for this dress.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This dress and petticoat was originally made out of scraps of coloured stretch gauze which is a fabric I have used over many years. The joins were given prominence with the addition of soft vintage grosgrain ribbons.â&#x20AC;?

SUSTAINABLE RURAL TRANSPORT> INTERDESIGN 2005 PRODUCES TANGIBLE RESULTS When the final prototypes of donkey carts and bicycles are delivered to South Africaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national Department of Transport in the near future, Interdesign 2005 will have come the full circle. The handover is proof that an Interdesign can produce tangible results and that the success of a project of this nature can only be achieved if all stakeholders are willing to work together.

It is found in our brain, in Google, in ecological sustainability, the developmental power of entrepreneurship, and the ethical power of democracy. In recent decades modern computing and science have jumped on the fractal geometry bandwagon, finding high-tech applications for its powerful self-organising capabilities. However, Africa and the indigenous design of its diverse cultures have recently been singled out as pioneering the very principles of fractal geometry.

DEFINING A BUSH CAMP AESTHETIC

Fusing innovative thinking with master crafting, the husband-and-wife team behind SilvioRech+LesleyCarstens Architecture & Interior Architecture is re-defining relevant African architecture with a contemporary slant.


“A typical view of Africa will show societies that are underschooled, underfed and badly governed. This is a common thread. Yet beneath the surface, there are exceptional and diverse forms of design, many developed out of necessity, that give character and meaning to life in Africa.” – Silvio Rech

The multiple award-winning North Island, Seychelles. Work commenced in 2001 with the building of a staff village and a sample villa. The project continued until 2003 with the architects living on site, designing and executing the North Island front-of-house. Completed in July 2003, the island was dubbed ‘haute couture Robinson Crusoe’. This project saw the architects’ development of a signature style in island lodges combining barefoot luxury and 6-star service and comfort. Photos by Dook, Mickey Hoyle and David Ross.

IMMERSIVE TYPOGRAPHY Alchemy can happen when one combines the talent of a master typographer with cutting edge technology and adding the heritage of a deeply spiritual and ancient African writing system. Jan Erasmus, founder and creative director of Johannesburg-based CyberGraphics, famed for his innovative Thornface, Transition and ExportUnicase fonts, has been exploring new dimensions in typography for decades. His recent work focuses on what he describes as the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;immersiveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dimension of typography. ²*O UZQPHSBQIZ * BN FYQMPSJOH UIF DSFBUJPO PG JNNFSTJWFNPNFOUT5IJTJTBOJMMVTJPOPOFDPVME DBMM´SFBMJUZUZQPHSBQIZµXIJDIDPOOFDUTBSFBEFS EJSFDUMZUPUIFPCKFDUJWFPGBNFTTBHFWJFXFEPO B TDSFFO³  TBZT &SBTNVT )F FYQMBJOT ²3FBEFST TIPVMEOPUKVTUWJFXUZQFBTJNBHF UIFZTIPVME SBUIFSIBWFBOFYQFSJFODFUIBUHPFTCFZPOEUIF NFSFBQQFBSBODF5ZQFUIFO-7UIFNFTTBHF5IJT

SHAPING THE NAMIBIAN FASHION DESIGN IDENTITY #Z.FMBOJF)BSUFWFME#FDLFS

Since gaining political independence in 1990, Namibians have pursued the development of a reconciled and unique national identity that reflects their societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new social system. Fashion design not only offers consumers an opportunity to express their own transforming identities, but also offers designers the freedom to experiment and express themselves within a truly Namibian context.

The light box counter that runs along the side of the tea room displays a variety of tea pots and drinking vessels.

The Nigiro business card doubles up as tea in a sachet and allows the recipient to sample the cardholderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favourite tea.

HALDANE MARTIN > DESIGNING WITH A CONSCIENCE â&#x20AC;&#x153;Living in South Africa exposes us to the extreme polarities of great beauty and also enormous pain and suffering. On a daily basis we come face to face with AIDS, addiction, violence, crime and perhaps, at the root of it all â&#x20AC;&#x201C; abject poverty. I find it very difficult to ignore the suffering that I see around me. I feel the pain and sickness in my own mind, soul and body. How can I not design with a conscience?â&#x20AC;? Haldane Martin.

Introduction wo brothers, Leon and Gideon van der Vyver, had a vision to develop a self-contained lifestyle estate offering a combination of business and leisure facilities that would allow families to thrive and build a meaningful life together. Their concept of quality of life went beyond having a signature golf course designed by one of the world's best golfers and beyond the notion of being able to ride horses along bridle paths. Their quest was to achieve a closer relationship between nature and people, through the re-introduction of wildlife to a newly-created highveld neighbourhood, the Serengeti Golf & Wildlife Estate.

T

Credit must go to the collaborative efforts of the professional team, to the estate architects, Stauch Vorster, who have remained custodians of the architectural principles of the estate, to the Serengeti Marketing division and all the suppliers that have held true to that vision. This estate has enormous potential to deliver excellent value due to the facilities it offers within a secure infrastructure. Needless to say, its location is simply superb and those that choose to invest in property at Serengeti will be assured of a winning combination of easy living and convenience for everyone in the family.

Hear the call of Africa

J

ohannesburg's East Rand has long been populated by salt-of-the-earth

entrepreneurs that tackle everything

from mining and a broad cross section of industries to agriculture. You won't find huge craggy mountains, sea views or lush forests here. This is a place of wide open spaces where you will find a brand new suburb, a meticulously planned lifestyle estate, named after the wild stretch of the East African savannah, known as the Serengeti.

he 780 hectare site of The Serengeti Golf and Wildlife Estate used to be covered with maize crops. For generations, this was agricultural land, but its close proximity to the OR Tambo International Airport kept beckoning the owners to transform the land into a residential node that could offer so much more.

T

This has not been a rush, let's-jump-onto-thehigh-density-housing, make a quick buck while you can development. In fact, nothing was launched on this estate until a thorough environmental impact study was completed. The developers travelled extensively around South Africa and the United States, exploring the different options and examining the dynamics of various residential developments. The result of all the research, strategising and conceptualising is a future proof security estate that will eventually have the full spectrum of what a community needs to function at all levels.

273


ringing the spirit of Africa home to the residents, there is a 280-hectare conservation area covering the outskirts of the northern and eastern aspects of the estate. Here, wildlife will roam freely and a wide variety of bird species will be left to thrive in the veld and the wetlands that have been restored to the area.

B

There are two entrances - the north gate that is entered off the R25 from the R21 and the south gate that leads to the R23. Once the Gautrain is operational, residents will be able to commute to both Johannesburg and Pretoria, simply by taking a shuttle from the estate to the airport and hopping onto a train. For frequent flyers, there will be no need to synchronise family and friends to fetch and carry, nor will there be exorbitant parking costs the car stays home in the garage, while the traveller traverses the globe with peace of mind.

275


ommunity living at its best is enhanced by the various public facilities that will be available within the estate. The Serengeti Village Square retail centre, a stone's throw away from the clubhouse, will include a deli for daily shopping, a coffee shop, restaurants and other boutique-style stores, so that residents don't have to leave the estate to do their shopping. The 6000 sq metre clubhouse will have a fully equipped gym, pro shop, restaurant and conference facilities.

C

Adjacent to the north gate, an office park and a hotel will cater to the business requirements of the residents. Close to the south gate, the Serengeti Academy, which opens in 2010, will offer private education to the children on the estate. The school will be opened in phases and by 2013, the Academy will be fully operational, catering to all ages, from Grade 000 (3 years old) to Grade 12 (matric). The Equestrian Centre next to the Academy will have stabling for horses and residents will be able to enjoy riding along the 17 kilometres of bridle paths and through the conservation area.

277


Jack Nicklaus Signature Course entral to the lifestyle aspect of the estate, the 27-hole Jack Nicklaus signature golf course will ensure that players get their fair share of exercise and challenges from the small ball. This is the fifth Jack Nicklaus-designed course to be built in South Africa, rubbing shoulders with sister courses at Pecanwood, Simola, Pearl Valley and St Francis Links.

C

The Serengeti course is the first golf course in Gauteng to be planted with cool season grasses allowing golfers to enjoy playing on green fairways all year round. The driving range has two generous tee complexes and there is a teaching academy where qualified PGA Professionals will be available to help golfers improve their game and encourage residents to learn the sport.

279


T

he estate architects tasked with translating and safeguarding the vision of the development, Stauch Vorster Architects (Johannesburg), were involved in delivering all the infrastructure buildings including the Estate Management Complex and the recently opened clubhouse. “Our approach to determining the architectural language of the estate was to define an elegant and appropriate South African/ Johannesburg architecture, unmistakably African in its experience,” comments Stauch Vorster's project partner, Andrew Payne. “We tried to keep all the materials as true to themselves as possible, using the natural colours and textures as they are. We wanted to avoid using anything fake and in our guidelines we encouraged authentic architecture, true to our local context, yet contemporary, very much 2009 in its interpretation.”

281


Clubhouse

A

ll the architecture on the estate is inspired by the horizontal lines evoked by the Serengeti and the site itself. The approach to the clubhouse design was to further establish as much synergy between the natural and the built environments as possible. The front entrance to the building is deceptive in its simplicity, appearing as a single storey that lies flat amidst veld grasses and indigenous plantscaping. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only as you come around to the other side, the full extent of the building with its large expanses of glass and double volume vistas over the golf course is revealed. The external finishes received a lot of attention and off shutter concrete, reeded plaster and beautiful stonework have been given a touch of warmth with the addition of random timber cladding and decking. Although treated with oil-based preservatives, the wood will be allowed to weather over time to a silver-grey hue to blend with the concrete and stone. The thatch roofing, has been used in a crisp and modern way, with the wavy lines of the eaves and gumpoles giving way to the clean straight lines of the paired planed timber trusses that are braced with cables.

283


W

ater is a fundamental part of the experience to and through the clubhouse. As you arrive, there is a sense of collecting under the shade of an umbrella thorn at a water source, providing the metaphorical respite from the sometimes harsh African elements prior to embarking on the journey which, in this case, is through the building. The water 'journeys' through the building along with you and you are almost always aware of its presence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Water has so many positive influences on the soul. It has incredible reflection qualities and we've tried hard to maximise what the water has to offer in terms of its impact on all the senses,â&#x20AC;? says Payne.

To ensure that the building's environment became as self-regulating as possible, the architects did shadow studies to determine the impact of the sun at different times of the year. Through the addition of timber slatted screens, deep overhangs and carefully considered openings, unnecessary energy consumption, caused by having to heat the building in winter and cool it in summer, has been avoided. Here again, the presence of water has significance, as it also serves as a natural coolant and contributes to the natural regulation of the building's temperature.

The Show Village

F

or the housing development, twenty firms have been hand-picked to sit on the panel of accredited architects. They were chosen according to their interpretation of the overall vision and their commitment to preserving the integrity of the estateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s identity. To better illustrate what can be achieved within the architectural guidelines, a show village has been built. It is a reflection of how differing styles and interpretations can still work together in unison within the framework of the style guidelines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The idea of having a variety of showhouses is that, if you bring 20 000 people through the six houses, the chances are higher that everyone will find something that appeals to them,â&#x20AC;? explains Andrew Payne.

P

ositioned around a close, the houses have a variety of orientations. Stauch Vorster Architects were responsible for two of the show houses – No.35 and No.39. The other four were designed by: Edmonds & Erasmus – No.37, Nico van der Meulen – No.34, SBE Architects – No.38 and Thomas Gouws Architects – No.36. Each of the interiors was styled by a different interior design firm, to further establish variety and points of difference.

“All the professional consultants working at the estate had to have bought into the philosophy that holds the whole together,” says Payne. “This protects the individual and overall investment and actually goes way beyond the architecture. The urban, architectural, engineering, landscaping and interior design disciplines have to work seamlessly to deliver and reinforce the original concept of the estate.”

289


E

ach of the Stauch Vorster houses was designed as a series of frames through which the natural light and the beauty of the surroundings is brought indoors. Understanding that the South African lifestyle encompasses living outdoors as much as possible, the architects created outdoor 'rooms' that closely interconnect with the internal rooms, both structurally and through the colours and the materials used. “For me, nature is the inspiration and the canvas. Every building is an opportunity to connect people with each other and with nature, through their entire experience,” says Payne. “For the two showhouses, we chose to design simple single storey houses close to nature with familiar double pitched roofs. No.35 has more warmth in its colour, texture and materiality, while in No. 39 we used lighter crisper colours for a more modern and cleaner look.”

291


Contemporary Lapa he approach to House No.37 again gives you a sense of the modern woven into a distinctly African abode. Designed by JoĂŠhan Erasmus of Edmonds & Erasmus, this home was fashioned around the lifestyle of a top entrepreneur that works from home and entertains in grand style. To the left of the entrance, a separate garage has been set aside for the golf cart, with a double garage placed to the right for the family vehicles. The pathway has a 'canopy' of latte, slung hammock-style over the entrance. Although the roof is thatch, the apex, made of glass, forms a natural skylight throughout.

T

There is hint of glitz to this home, with its metallic mosaics in the washrooms and almost sixties-shaped light fittings made from natural products.

he first part of the lower floor is dedicated to the businessman's needs, with a study leading onto a secluded patio and a guest bedroom that has the quirky inclusion of the shower and toilet cubicle leading directly off the bedroom on each side of the wash basin vanity/ dressing table. The stairway to the upper, more private family bedrooms slices through the entrance - perfect for teenagers who can't be bothered with ceremony.

T

Moving to the lower living areas, you pass a wine cellar and a bar that has a glimpse of the dining room (rather than a hatchway). The entire south wall of the house can be peeled back so that the lounge, dining room, kitchen and family room are exposed to the outdoors. The central patio has a traditional built-in braai and on the other side of a stone wall, there's a boma with a fire pit in the centre.

he scullery has been designed with one long counter and double access points to the kitchen so that caterers can cope with large gatherings without the open plan kitchen looking disheveled. Outside the 'service entrance' there is enough covered space to store recycling bins for glass, plastic and paper. There is a permanent space for the ironing board and laundry racks - a feature that is often completely forgotten in contemporary house configurations.

T

Upstairs, on the landing, bookshelves and a strategically-positioned easy chair and ottoman make use of an otherwise dead space - and to protect the family's confidential documents and precious assets, there is a hidden walk-in safe behind one of the walls of books.

he main bedroom in the west wing has an unconventional bathing configuration, with the bath positioned close to the foot of the bed. A separate shower cubicle, with a full length glass wall and separate toilet cubicle step out directly into the bedroom, opposite his and hers basins set into a natural timber vanity unit. An integral part of the flow, his and hers walk-in cupboards are large enough for winter and summer clothing to be stored separately and shoe racks provide plenty of space for fashion, leisure and sports shoes. The teenage bedrooms share an interleading bathroom, but again private space is catered for with separate basins and titivating areas. The 'passage' feels more like a walkway, with glass doors opening to a balcony that has magnificent views of the golf course. Throughout the house, pictures and accessories echo the call of Africa, while the play of natural light during the day and dappled artificial light at night bring out the character of the textures and the finishes.

Pajama Lounge for the kids esigned by brother and sister team, Johan Breytenbach and Suzette Fourie Hammer of SBE Architects, House No.38 does not look compact, although it is the smallest double storey of the show house collection.

D

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact that this north-entry house is relatively close to the street proved challenging because the living areas need to face north to take advantage of the sunlight. To comply with the estate regulations of not having boundary walls, we had to be very creative to ensure privacy, especially around the swimming pool,â&#x20AC;? says Suzette Fourie Hammer, CEO of SBE Architects. Having raised four of her own children, Fourie Hammer is well equipped to help clients plan a home that will feel comfortable through all the stages of their family's growth and development. This planning for the future, so that clients never feel the need to upgrade or move, is part of the firm's strategic thinking.

ohan and I prefer to use classic lines, so that the house doesn't date,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We try to achieve a cosiness and give each house that we design its own soul. We never put our own signature on the design - each house is designed around our clients and their own specific lifestyle.â&#x20AC;?

J

For House No.38, glass was used in a number of ways - from glass walls, to stairway and balcony balustrades and skylights - to ensure transparency and openness. The double volume entrance and side atrium with their flow of water running through them, impart the feeling of being in a mediation zone. There is a distinct indoor/outdoor feel to the living areas on the lower level, while on the upper level, the pyjama lounge is private enough for the teenagers to feel comfortable, without being completely shut off from the rest of the home.

303


T

here is a guest suite downstairs, which can double as a study, with its own private deck. Upstairs, there are three en-suite bedrooms, with views of the golf course. Voted the most beautiful bathroom in the show village, the master bathroom has his and hers basins as well as his and hers showers and a freestanding bath laid out within the context of a dressing room. Plantation shutters between the bedroom and bathroom keep the openness, while still achieving a measure of privacy. Out in the garden, the swimming pool, surrounded by maintenancefree synthetic wooden decking, is buffered from the street by a fire pit with built-in seating. “We always make sure that we stay within budget and for this house, we made sure that there was no wasted space,” says Fourie Hammer. “So far, we have done about 80% of the houses on the estate and we pride ourselves in being the only architects at Serengeti that are founder members as well. We are such fans of the lifestyle planned for the estate that we have also bought stands and we look forward to becoming residents at Serengeti in the very near future.”

305


Unified Vision nderstanding that demanding careers and concerns over the safety of one's family are cause for a lot of stress in this country, the developers have tried to provide a complete solution, adding a fibre optic network for internet, broadband connectivity and even videos-on-demand, as well as state-of-the-art security, as part of the offering.

U

In addition to full title stands, with a minimum size of 1000 sq metres each, there are a number of eco lodges and themed villages that will offer a new standard of upmarket, village-style living. With a design vision that embraces the spirit of Africa, with its sense of wide open spaces, relaxed and secure lifestyle and the convenience and easy access to the airport and the business districts of Johannesburg, Centurion and Pretoria, Serengeti Golf & Wildlife Estate is destined to become one of the most popular family estates in Gauteng.
